At this point I'm sure most of you have heard about the new pre-order bonus for ESO which allows you to join any faction as any race. So, for those of you who have either pre-ordered prior to this announcement or plan to pre-order in the future, do you plan to make a character in a faction other then the one they were originally meant for?


"To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods."

Yes. I do actually.
While the faction lock, did instil faction-pride into the more...impressionable people, I wasn't one of them.
As such, I couldn't care what alliance sits on the throne.
And hence forth, my chars will be on different alliances, mostly.


Vlos Hithern!

Va Khaj Dar!

I truly do not think this matters what so ever. The people complaining about how this is 'lore breaking' are just plain wrong. This does make sense, and there's no reason to be opposed to it. So yes, I will.

Down with the covenant!
Glory to the pact!

It's lore breaking to have any race of man in the AD or an Altmer in the EP so yes it does break some lore.

I checked undecided, since my first and main character will comply to their own faction.
However I do intend on making an Imperial, which by default..

Ill say this quickly though.
This announcement is terrible for the early stages of the game, but absolutely amazing for the long term.
So hopefully ZOS have a plan to keep subs up for long enough for that to take place.

I'm pretty content with my choice of race and the faction that comes with it. Apart from that, I won't comment any further on the "any race any alliance" issue since I've already stated my position on that.

I'm of the same mentality, but I still ticked "no". What you got to remember though is that this only applies to Pre-Orders, all those that come later will be faction-locked, could be some interesting interactions later in the game :)

I'm currently undecided. Whatever works best with my class, build and playstyle really.
Thus, may the fiddling commence.

Well, having spent several months wrapping my head around and gradually coming to accept the factions, the idea that they're only now loosening things up a bit is rather annoying. I won't say that the factions as they exist are totally-lore friendly, or that you can't make a realistic character with the "wrong" race/faction match-up, but this does make me uneasy about people who will now try to min-max or pick and choose according to their tastes without even the slightest regard for backstory.

Also, I don't plan on pre-ordering, so oh well!
